Ar: Dark, pungent malt; melanoidin toast and a bit of caramel and sulfur. Ap: Deep amber and clear; medium-small tan head with good retention, settling into a chubby wafer of foam. T: Caramel and toast, moderate-light sweetness; some grass and hay, with peppery hop flavor and a medium-low bitterness; a little chocolate and pomegranate; moves from base malt to caramel to sweet, earthy fruits; a little bit of waxy sherry in the background. P: Medium-light body with medium-high carbonation; somewhat creamy, finishing medium-dry. O: An enjoyable dunkel; lacks some focus, but does bring a slight degree of complexity across with the transforming malt/ester character; overall fairly clean and malt-forward. cheap (6255) - CHINA - JUL 20, 2017
Scored this nifty looking foreign bottle in Liquor locker Hagerstown. Darker iced tea color. Nice tan head. Smells like mildly sweet malt & yeast. Yes a dunk but the alky shows thru a little. Not as civilized as other dunkels from the old country. Decent co2, a little misbehaved. Although never in yer face, with that dunkel thing going on, it never lets you know this is crafted the old country way. A little difficult to get used to. The domestic samples of Anderson Valley El Steinber Dark Lager,
Weeping Radish Black Radish Dark Lager or even
Penn Dark are better than this. So much more enjoyable. Must be the freshness, or is it the transportation? But hey, this is one beautifully made label on this bot. crossovert (14233) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 1, 2017
500ml bottle. Actually not the worst, within its best by the dunkel seems less affected by transport than the lighter beers, still a bit marmitey. Dedollewaitor (16606) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 16, 2017
Bottle @ Bayreuth. Pours amber with a White head. Malt extract, toffee, bread, Dark overripe fruit and ashes. Medium bodied. Intense toffee and dms. kramer (6991) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 31, 2017
Bottle. Pours a clear dark amber body with a small fizzy beige head that retained as a thin covering. The nose is sweet toasted and caramel malt with a little light-roast coffee. The flavor is a bit weak I suppose, some thin caramel and toffee notes with just a little huskiness and a light bitterness towards the back end. Light to medium bodied with a little clinginess from the residual sweetness. Soft fizzy carbonation. Not terribly exciting, but an easy drinker.
